I've read that, but haven't checked it out yet, I'll have to read up on it some more. Is it just preload adjustments?I feel you probably already know it, but the bike can b lowered about an inch by way of factory adjustments.
I was tempted to spend some money lowering mine, but by using the factory adjustments and a bit of practice, I decided I could enjoy it without spending the extra bucks.
Ah, thanks for the info! I'm going to get it insured and registered tomorrow and then try a little trail riding, it rides beautifully from the little I've had it out so far .slide the fork tubes up in the triple tree. The rear shock has a height adjustment as well.
If you look below the swing arm on the shock assembly itself, there is a black round rubber nut looking gizmo. loosen the hex nut below it and make the threads between the hex nut and the rubber nut disappear.( not too good with mechanical terms.)
Finally, yes you can take some of the height out of it by relieving some preload. I had "experts" tell me that would only make for a softer ride, but I lowered mine so much I didn't have enough adjustment in my headlight and had to make some extensions to get the headlight to point downward enough. As time goes on, I am reintroducing more preload and I am almost back to factory setting. I guess my fat arse is slowly killing the spring. I am sure there are a host of youtube clips on the subject.
hope this help. I know you will love it. if not, they sell like snowballs on a hot day. don't know your year but with those low miles (kms??) that looks like at least a $3800 bike if it is an "08
